Try adding this to the new kernel's options in /etc/grub.conf after updating and
before rebooting:


So it should look something like

  kernel <kernel-name> ro root=LABEL=/ pci=nomsi,nommconf <other options>

And the old kernel is still there after updating, you can press a key on the
very first boot screen and choose the old kernel.
Comment 2 Derek Hopkins 2007-10-04 16:41:24 EDT
I did that and boot still does not work  (hangs)on the new kernel Also as you
said the old one is still there so was able to edit in your change.
I have quiet also  is there a verbose option  that might help to see where it
stops.  as this time it was only showing the "booting the kernel"
Comment 3 Derek Hopkins 2007-10-04 19:02:26 EDT
Sorry  my error
It is now working  and 14 more packages updated  also monitor noe showing more
options for size

I am a happy camper  --  thanks
